By Virginie Despentes
"Virginie Despentes's Apocalypse child saved me up a number of nights in a row—in half simply because it's an amazing page-turner, and partly simply because i used to be frightened to work out how Despentes could maintain her narrative experience. Apocalypse child is greater than a compelling punk, queerish spin at the noir style. it's a choral functionality that tumbles its readers into the center of violent spectacle, with all its attendant grief, unease, and unclarity."—Maggie Nelson, writer of The artwork of Cruelty and professor on the California Institute of the Arts
"Virginie Despentes's social feedback is blistering, yet her prose is laid-back. Apocalypse child is an addictive feminist mystery that reads like shameless gossip out of your smartest friend."—Johanna Fateman

She is tailed through mismatched deepest investigators: the Hyena, half ruthless interrogator, half oversexed rock superstar, and Lucie, her simple and passive—almost to the purpose of invisible—sidekick. As their determined seek unfolds, they interrogate a suspicious forged of characters, and the darkish center of latest early life tradition is exposed.
